What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is most widely defined by Jon Kabat-Zinn as “the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.” Essentially, mindfulness is being awake and alive, living each moment fully without excessive worry about the past or future. And we can bring this kind of awareness to our daily lives through the practice of mindfulness meditation.
“When we stay in the present, we make wiser choices and take things less personally. It’s compelling and emancipating.” -Saki Santorelli
